Painting for a Cottage Look


A friend recently asked my advice on a wall color for a cottage look.  A cottage look almost always has in its scenario colors from the outdoors - muted, washed and distressed.  My favorite go-to color for this look is Benjamin Moore's Moonlight White.  Blues, grays and the earthy browns dance beautifully off this fresh neutral backdrop.  And the added accent colors like red or green will integrate perfectly.  And let's not forget our ceilings, the surface that often gets second class status.  Give the room a serene watery canopy with a gray/blue such as Benjamin Moore's Whitestone to complete the look.
